About

LShift is an independent software development company with offices in London and Berlin. It was founded in 2000 in Shoreditch, London, long before Silicon Roundabout or Tech City had even been imagined, by developers and designed to provide the ideal conditions in which the best levels of technical services can be offered to clients. Our model has proven successful again and again in the many long-standing relationships we have developed with our clients.

LShift joins GA4GH

We’re extremely proud to announce our membership of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH).

One of the limitations of this process currently is that FrameLog does not rehydrate… ”

RabbitMQ Consulting

LShift offers bespoke consulting for clients using RabbitMQ for the first time, or with large or complex use cases. We were the original authors of RabbitMQ so we have a good understanding of the best way to employ it, as well as, for that matter, any messaging or integration technology.
